I am about 40 miles south of Lake Erie and so far I have about 5 inches of snow. Up by the lake they usually get at least twice what I have. I am actually surprised I have as much snow as I have. You probably remember that lake effect snow that makes Erie PA and Buffalo NY unbearable in the winter.

About two feet. Drifts to over three feet around the cars. Just dug out.

Man we got slammed here in Wilson County NC.....

It snowed so hard it almost started to accumulate on the streets. It had practically almost completely covered the grass and the car windshields.

One quarter of an inch of snow is nothing to sneeze at. That's some serious snow accumulation.

We were close to shutting down the state and declaring an emergency situation. That would have happened at 3/8" of accumulation. Man did we ever dodge the proverbial bullet on this one....

It's terrible, the temperature dipped under 50 this morning. I had to go out to the mailbox to put an outgoing Netflix disk in it. I told Leilani, "If I'm not back in ten minutes, send out the St. Bernards, with brandy kegs." Fortunately I got in before suffering severe hypothermia.

On the serious side. I hope everyone 'up north' made it through the storm OK.

@ CountryTrash, Herb and Notes: Y'all are just MEAN! ;-)

@Matt : TWO FEET??? wow, I hope that isn't normal winter weather for you!

@Eddie: Living that close to the lakes, sounds like you got off easy!

@VideoTrack: hard to believe that isn't a photoshopped image

@pghboemike: Sounds like you dodged a bullet too! Hard to imagine that much difference in accumulation within very narrow geographic areas

but, Herb isn't THAT far from where I live... he apparently got SOME snow while Winston-Salem didn't get any. The daffodils are still in bloom, as they have been for about 3 weeks now....

Snow, what's snow???

(said the guy who used to live in northern Virginia and remembers back-breaking shoveling, but now enjoying sunny Pensacola, FL - although it did get down to freezing this morning, but it will get back up to 60 this afternoon).

Does that make me one of the mean ones, too, Pat?

We have double trouble here. Last week we had wind gusts with winds over 80 MPH (129KPH) for a 24 hour period. Many tree and power lines were down. In fact we lost three evergreen trees in our front lawn and we have a silver maple tree at a 45 degree angle in our back yard. It is hanging over our pool and chain link fence. Over 150,000 people lost power. We were very lucky in that we did not loose power. Around 1,000 people didn't have power when this storm hit, even with power companies from all over the country and Canada here.

Now we have over 2 feet (30 centimeters) of snow with another foot or so of lake effect snow predicted for today. No big deal here as we are used to snow. I was out snow blowing for about 3.5 hours yesterday blowing my driveway and helping neighbors. I'm going back out later today and doing it all over again.

The biggest fear here is that many trees are leaning and/or damaged from the wind storm. Wind speeds up to 30-40 MPH (48-64 KPH) are predicted today and with the amount of snow on these trees they could come down. Plus this weekend it is predicted to rain. If these trees don't have good root systems there could be more problems.

Luckily our house wasn't damaged. We are good, just real tired and sore!

Pat, it's not normal for recent years but ordinary when you think of the Hudson Valley back to the 1970s. Of course, growing up in the Adirondacks (where you will visit in July), I spent my childhood in the 1950s looking up at the surface of the snow.

And that's not one of these "I walked five miles to school everyday, uphill both ways" jokes. It's true.

@John: it's hard to call a nice guy like you mean, but yep. (I guess my daffodil comment puts me in the same group...)

@Mario: Wow... sounds like you're going to have a lot of cleanup to do this spring! And if the snow turns to ice... freezing rain on compromised trees is a baaaaaaad combination! Please keep us posted!

@Matt: I grew up in the mountains of central Pennsylvania, and although I don't remember any snowfalls that were deeper than my stature, I believe you!

I hope all that snow melts before your concert in July... ;-)

(semi-related joke: My sister lives in Rochester Minnesota, where its so cold the city is connected by underground tunnels because nobody wants to go outside from Oct to about April. The standard joke there is: "I hope summer falls on a weekend this year"

We have friends who used to live in Wisconsin who would say that they only had two seasons: winter and the 4th of July.

User Tip - Slowing Down and Looping Audio in Band-in-a-Box®

Forum user DeaconBlues09 created a video tutorial to help answer a fellow forum user's question:
Using the Audio Chord Wizard to tempo map, slow down, and learn the notes of an audio track - video link http://www.pgmusic.com/?vid=R09Lf3bHjhQ

Forum thread: http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=467504

Thanks for sharing!

#TBT - Band-in-a-Box® 2006 for Windows Ear Training Fun!

With the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2006 for Windows we added two great games for ear training: Pitch Invasion and Music Replay!

Pitch Invasion helps to develop perfect pitch as you shoot down "alien" notes invading from above (you hear the note sound, and click on the on-screen piano/MIDI or QWERTY keyboard to shoot them down).

Music Replay develops your pitch, rhythm, and melody recognition by replaying what the program plays, in note, rhythm, or melodic modes.

These games can still be accessed with newer versions of the program - in Band-in-a-Box® 2018 you'll find these by accessing the Practice Window or Ear Training Window, both located in the Window drop-down menu. The Practice Window can also be accessed using the Practice button within the main Band-in-a-Box screen (don't see it? CTRL+T to change the view).

Learn all about the features released with Version 2006 here.

Amazing Band-in-a-Box User Comments!

Great program with lots of support through the publisher and after-market. Use it for teaching, practicing, and gigging.
-Andrew L.

I just got my 6th film placement on a song recorded entirely in Band-in-a-Box. You guys rock!
-Terry Fernihough (Band-in-a-Box Endorsing Artist!)

I love this program. I have only had it for around a month but it has made things a lot easier for me. I no longer have to scour the internet for backing tracks. I just plug in the chords I want to use, find the style I want and done. Saving me so much time and being able to transpose into different keys is awesome too.
As the days go on I will be delving deeper into what it can do, importing some of my backing tracks into Abelton 9 to play with and writing some songs.
Best money I have spent on something in while.
-Peter S.

I started using Band-in-a-Box around 1990. It was the DOS version naturally and I used one of those old portable computers with dual floppy drives and a built in 9" monochrome display. I connected midi cables to a great sounding Yamaha keyboard and played my music using midi tracks. I did a demo for a university music class that was a lot of fun. Wow, it is almost unimaginable to see where this product has elevated to today. I have upgraded many times over the past 28 years but each time I am even more amazed. Thank you PG Music for being such a major part of my love for music all of these years!!!
-Dwayne G.

Incredible Software. Great for ignorance and experts and for anyone who wants to deal with music. If you do not have a hobby and want to have one "band in a box" is the best choice. Simple, but if you want to be an expert on it, you need to make an effort to master it perfectly for perfect use. The only disadvantage is if you do not want to become a musician, and use it, you will become a perfect musician. Therefore, be cautious. It's not a toy.
-Ilija B.

I’ve been using it for about the same time (20 years). I’m a trumpet player and just really want some backing on lead sheets. With the Real Styles - it sounds fantastic! Takes just minutes to input chord changes and find the right style. There is so much you can do and I love having the Soloist features to really add color.
-Mike B.

Read even more great feedback here.
